Zack Snyder has made quite the home for himself at Netflix with Army of The Dead spawning multiple spin-offs and a sequel. The director has since expanded his work for the streamer, as he has begun developing Rebel Moon, a sci-fi film on a planet threatened by Regent Balisarius with only a few warriors to protect it. The project has only added Sophia Boutella in the leading role and not much was known about the project. Luckily, Snyder has now announced more of the cast, which will feature some familiar faces from his past works.
Joining the cast of Rebel Moon will be Ray Fisher, Charlie Hunnam, Djimon Hounsou, Doona Bae, Jena Malone, Staz Nair, E. Duffy, Charlotte Maggi, and Sky Yang with more casting set to be announced soon. It’s unknown just who each of them will be playing as plot and character details still remain under wraps. With the casting announcement came some new concept art that could offer us our first look at the tyrannical Regent along with what looks to be a few of the warriors in the film.
Snyder is best known for films like Watchmen and 300, as well as kicking off the DC Extended Universe with Man of Steel. He recently was able to finish the work he could never finish with Zack Snyder’s Justice League. No release date for the film has been set just yet as production is set to begin sometime in April until August. Rebel Moon will be the second franchise Snyder hopes to build at the streamer with what looks like a rich new universe for him to explore and build.
